Former AG Jeff Sessions Triggered After Getting Body-Slammed By Trump

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not pleased after getting body-slammed by President Trump in a Friday tweet by the leader of the free world.
After being fired by Trump in 2018, Sessions has returned to his home state of Alabama where he is trying to appeal to voters to send him back to the U.S. Senate, a job that he held for two decades.
But following his dismal performance as the nation's top law enforcement official where he recused himself from overseeing the great Russian collusion hoax shortly after being sworn in, he faces a tall task to regain the trust of conservatives.
He is currently in a battle for his political life as he is in a dogfight with former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville who Trump has endorsed and faces a tough primary this summer.
On Friday, his former boss urged Alabama voters not to trust Sessions who "let our country down" in a tweet which again endorsed Tuberville and featured one of the candidate's ads that ripped Sessions for throwing the POTUS to the wolves.
Trump's tweet triggered Sessions who showed more fighting spirit than he ever did at the Justice Department where he was repeatedly rolled by Rod Rosenstein and Mueller's goon squad.
Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions shot back at President Trump over his decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, offering a rare rebuke of a president he’s sought to tightly hug in his Alabama Senate campaign.
“Look, I know your anger, but recusal was required by law. I did my duty & you're damn fortunate I did. It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration. Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do,” Sessions tweeted late Friday night.
The rare broadside came in response to a tweet from Trump telling Alabamans to "not trust” Sessions because of his recusal. The president also touted his endorsement for former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who is running against Sessions in the Senate race.
Sessions, who held the Alabama Senate seat for 20 years before becoming attorney general, has been dogged by criticism from the president and his allies for his recusal, which Trump and other critics say led to the appointment of former special counsel Robert Mueller.
Perhaps more than any single individual, Sessions was responsible for the three-year nightmare that has now been proven to be based on lies and which was a diabolical set-up by top Obama regime officials including Dear Leader himself.
Sessions claims that he was required by law to recuse himself but his squishy demeanor during his Senate confirmation hearings where he was hectored by his Dem colleagues who demanded his recusal in everything related to Russia was a giveaway that he was the wrong man for the job.
President Trump frequently criticized Sessions on Twitter for his spinelessness that led to the Mueller inquisition and clearly felt betrayed by the then-senator who should have told him that he didn't have the backbone to stand up to Democrats before he accepted the job.
Once Sessions was terminated and William Barr became the attorney general, Mueller and his attack dogs were quickly fitted for choke chains and the charade came to an end.
Will Alabama voters give Sessions a pass? Not if President Trump has anything to say about it.
